Andhadhun follows a pianist (Ayushmann) who witnesses a murder and gets inextricable in this universe that turns out to be ghastly and unforgiving.
The film ends when a presumably blind Ayushmann kicks a can out of his approach with his support stick. The consummate drops a spirit that he has got his prophesy behind yet a doubt arises, ‘How did this happen’?
Raghavan talks about a opposite theories per a climax, a casting of a lead actors and his adore for a thriller genre.
“When we were about to recover a film, there was a lot of worry from a producers’ finish per a ending. They were meditative ‘Will this finish work?’ or ‘Should we have a correct closure?’.
“There was a worry that a assembly is not developed adequate and they will not know it. we felt that this film is designed for a certain kind of an finale and if we change it, it will turn an typical story,” Raghavan told PTI in an interview.
The film, that expelled on Oct 5, is desirous from a 2010 French brief film L’Accordeur (The Piano Tuner).
He credits filmmaker-writer Hemanth Rao and his group of writers – Arijit Biswas, Pooja Ladha Surti and Yogesh Chandekar for creation this poser thriller entertaining.
“When we used to plead a scenes and a writers would conflict to them as viewers and vice-versa. It was a common effort.”
The film has amassed over Rs 70 crore during a box office.

The story of money, murder and a double-cross diversion has Tabu as a femme fatale and Anil Dhawan, as a former 1970s film star.
Tabu was someone, Raghavan says, he always wanted to work with yet was watchful for a right opportunity.
“While essay a story, we kept her in mind. Once we were 70-80 percent ready, we narrated it to her and she was diversion for it. She used to keep seeking me, ‘Am we a villain?’ and we would tell her, ‘You are a impression who is held in certain resources and all of us are able of doing terrible things as most as doing good things’.”
